    Your question itself contains the answer. First, brush your study table clean. Take some time to think, see that as preparation, not a “waste” of time. Then make a list of the reasons you think are causing you those “stresses”. Put that list away for 24 hours and don’t think about it. These 24 hours, forget just everything about your studies a…[Read more]

    I try to acknowledge the anger understand it as an emotion triggered by my thoughts first up. Just doing that sometimes gets that emotion back into perspective and it quickly settles without doing any damage. Probably because of a simple thought diversion. But more often than not I also ask myself where is that anger coming from. Where did those…[Read more]

    You’re not dependent, that’s right.

    However, physical dependency only rears its ugly head in the final stage of alcoholism.

    The previous stages are more subtle, and include tolerance (you need more alcohol to achieve the same high) and loss of control (drinking one is never enough, you keep on drinking).

    While you’re not in the final stage…[Read more]

    If you are sure you are in no physical danger, don’t do anything.
    Don’t move.
    Don’t speak.
    Don’t nod.
    Don’t break eye contact.
    Wait it out.

    Sooner or later the shouter will realize that he/she is getting no where and will say something like, ‘Well, aren’t you going to say anything?’

    Hold no resentment:
    Holding on to the negative emotions can just negatively affect your own wellbeing. Figure out how to excuse others. Excusing keeps the relationship sound, yet additionally fends off you from stress and negative feelings.
